With the Wolves going young he will get his chance to prove he belongs.

Rumor had suggested Brewer could replace Kevin Martin or J.J. Barea in deal

If true, Corey Brewer would be a nice get for the Cavaliers.

Brandon Jennings has been caught twice flopping this year, and that earns him a small fine.

Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while suing a casino for letting you bet big while drunk…. Joakim Noah, Chicago Bulls. Friend of this site Coach Nick called watching Noah play “coach porn” — he plays with a high IQ, he is focused on defense, he can pass, he moves off…

Ty Lawson seemed to lose balance slightly while crossing over Corey Brewer, but that’s nothing compared to what happens to Brewer. (hat tip: Ben Golliver of Point Forward)

The Minnesota Timberwolves just can’t win close games. Trailing the Phoenix Suns by eight points in the fourth quarter Tuesday night, Minnesota exploded for a 24-6 run in a 110-101 win. Yet, the Timberwolves remain 1-12 in games decided by four or fewer points – by far the worst mark in the NBA. If only they…

This, my friends, is a highlight. Corey Brewer of the Timberwolves had no idea his breakaway dunk attempt was about to be contested — as you see the play unfold, it seems like Thomas Robinson would simply run by as Brewer elevates, like so many defenders do in similar situations. Brewer rises as if the…

Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while worrying about our national clown shortage… Carmelo Anthony, New York Knicks. New York picked up a win in New Orleans because of Carmelo Anthony (who seems to play well in that city as he had monster numbers in the All-Star Game, too). He poured…

The NBA continues to look at better ways to punish flopping and get players to think twice — they are going to be more aggressive with technical foul calls for flops in the D-League starting Thursday — but for now the NBA will continue it’s slap-on-the-wrist fines. The latest one goes to P.J. Tucker of…

If Andre Miller isn’t returning to the Nuggets, they might as well trade him. Miller, sent away from the team after feuding with Denver coach Brian Shaw, definitely wants a trade and a chance to play somewhere. The Nuggets should resist any inclination to be petty, and they should accommodate him. There are a number…

That play from Wednesday night worked for Mario Chalmers — he drew and offensive foul on Blake Griffin. He also flopped — and that’s the second time this season he’s been caught flopping so the league came down on him with a $5,000 fine this season. Yes, a whopping $5,000. To be clear, do the…

Tell me if this sounds at all familiar. 24 years old, about 6-foot-8, 6-foot-9. Roughly 250 pounds. Stronger and faster than just about everyone. Phenomenal basketball IQ. Highly skilled, but often criticized for what he can’t do instead of appreciated for what he does. That’s Blake Griffin. And at one point, that was LeBron James,…

Late in the Timberwolves’ win over the Lakers on Tuesday, Kevin Love fell awkwardly after being fouled in the air by Robert Sacre. It initially appeared as though the problem was his tailbone, though the official reason given for him sitting out Wednesday night’s game in Oklahoma City is a stiff neck. That would make…

This is one of the more egregious — and by that amusingly bad and funny — flops of the season. A lot of flops caught and fined by the league are guys exaggerating contact, but Shelvin Mack takes it to a new level. Watch the middle of the lane on the video above from Saturday’s…

A lot more flopping is happening on the offensive side of the ball in the NBA lately, so it’s good to see the league starting to throw some of their warnings that way (even if those warnings have no real impact on players). Kevin Martin of the Minnesota Timberwolves got one for the play above…

Brandon Knight, come on down, you’re the 22nd player this season to get a flopping warning from the NBA league office. You can see the play in question above, back from a Jan. 18 game. Houston’s James Harden (already fined for flopping this season himself) was backing down Knight in the post and Knight flopped…

To them this is more than a business — Mark Cuban and Dirk Nowitzki are friends. Technically they are boss and employee, but neither sees it that way. “I kick his ass whenever I’ve wanted to,” Cuban said last week, joking around about his friend the way you ride yours. “It’s kind of like we…

He may be on his way to the All-Star Game as a reserve (that’s not set in stone but it seems likely, more on that later in the week) but Lance Stephenson is still drawing the ire of the league. Indiana’s Stephenson was fined $5,000 by the league on Tuesday for flopping — it was…
